NCDOT Awards $992,885 Contract to Replace Two Bridges in Rockingham County Tuesday, March 12, 2013

RALEIGH — The N.C. Department of Transportation awarded a contract to replace bridges on Haynes Road and Price Mill Road in Rockingham County.  Both bridges carry traffic over Troublesome Creek.

The $992,885 contract was awarded to Haymes Brothers Inc. of Chatham, Va. Work can begin as early as April 1, with completion scheduled for no later than Nov. 1. Once the bridges are open, the contractor will continue landscaping and vegetation work until April 30, 2014.

The Haynes Road bridge will be replaced first.  During construction, motorists will be directed to use N.C. 65 to Hadson Road to U.S. 158 as a detour route.

Once the new Haynes Road bridge is open, crews will begin replacing the Price Mill Road bridge.  Motorists will be directed to use N.C. 65 to Haynes Road to U.S. 158 as a detour route during construction.

Both bridges were built in the mid-1950s and are considered functionally obsolete. This means the bridges are safe, but need to be replaced to meet current and future traffic demands.  

This is one of 18 contracts totaling $102 million awarded by NCDOT in February for highway and bridge projects across North Carolina. NCDOT awarded the contracts to the lowest bidders, as required by state law. The bids received on the projects awarded came in about 0.6 percent, or $638,695, below NCDOT estimates.
